Happy Sweetest Day, friends! Yup, that’s today!
What is Sweetest Day? It’s a day set aside in the United States to celebrate romance and love in our lives, with gifts, cards, and most often, candy. Basically it’s a day to celebrate sweetness with sweets!
Now, we know my battle with the scale is never-ending, but listen, a national holiday when sweets take center stage? It might be okay to relax that calorie count a little…and when Shari’s Berries offers to send us a box of their gourmet chocolate-covered strawberries? Sweetest Day may have just become my new favorite celebration!
When our berries arrived, my husband and I got our at-home date night on. We stashed the kids in bed, broke out a bottle and raised our chocolate treats in cheers to taking a moment to take a break for us. In the midst of work, school days, bath nights, homework fights, dinner cooking and piles of laundry, toasting our relationship often takes a back seat–often far in the back. Any excuse to table all of the other responsibilities and focus on each other is a good thing, a very good thing.
We didn’t talk for very long before our eyes started drooping and bedtime was calling, but we took time out for each other. Pausing to say, “Hey! I love you and I’m thankful to be hanging out it in this life with with you” is so important to a marriage.
And delighting in those chocolate-covered strawberries together was a pretty fantastic way to do it! Sometimes a delicious, indulgent treat is just the thing to make a night with your love feel very special.
